How to reply on WhatsApp with Apple Watch? If you did not know, our articles help readers decide on the choice of a particular gadget. We disassemble not only iPhone, AirPods and MacBook, but also Apple Watch.

The other day, Artem Rakhmatullin wrote to me and told me a story that a young man who knocked on his door on a social network and thanked him for his help in choosing the Apple Watch SE. Despite the fact that the watch fits him perfectly, the reader wondered if it was possible to reply to messages on WhatsApp. Let’s try to understand.

How to reply to WhatsApp messages with Apple Watch?

Whatsapp Message on Apple Watch

In WhatsApp, you can reply from a smartwatch, but it’s not very convenient

WhatsApp on Apple Watch works only as a second screen, i.e. it shows notifications, but does not give access to the application. In case, we remind you of what needs to be put in place.

  • On iPhone, go to the Watch app.
  • In the My Watch tab, tap Notifications and find WhatsApp.
  • Activate the switch.
  • After that, notifications from WhatsApp will arrive on Apple Watch.

Once received, you will need to click on it and select Reply. It is possible to send a ready response from templates or record a voice message. If suddenly you don’t have the “Reply” option, you need to go to the Watch application, go to “General” and select “Enable dictation”.

WhatsApp for Apple Watch

One of the most popular instant messengers does not have a version for Apple Watch: the company is in no hurry at all and for a long time cannot even create WhatsApp for the iPad. By default, on a smartwatch, you can only display a notification, reply with prepared phrases, or dictate a message by voice. Alright, is he still a crutch?

Fortunately, we live in 2023 – now iOS and other operating systems are quite open, they have many handy apps that work great without jailbreak. One of them is WristChat – an analogue of WhatsApp for apple watch:

The application accesses the owner’s account via the WhatsApp Web API. After installation, you need to scan the QR code on the smartwatch screen with your iPhone, after which a chat list, correspondence log or the option to send a new message will appear.

In addition, it has dictation and a wrist keyboard. It’s also handy that the app works with any Apple Watch model. Unfortunately, new chats cannot be created – only existing ones can be used. True, you will have to pay 279 rubles for the application.

True, judging by the rating of this application and others, the quality of their work leaves much to be desired, so you have to wait for WhatsApp to finally mature and create its own application for the Apple Watch.

Unable to send reply from Apple Watch?

Sometimes users complain that the Apple Watch reply is sent, but the messages don’t actually disappear. What to do – this question is asked by new Apple Watch users. There is a solution.

Check aeroplane mode. Maybe that’s why the messages aren’t getting through.

  • Make sure your watch is connected to the iPhone. Wi-Fi and data must be active.
  • Make sure Airplane Mode or Do Not Disturb is turned off on your Apple Watch.
  • Make sure you’re signed in to your Apple ID.
  • Check that the network signal is good and messages are sent from the iPhone.
  • Try toggling WhatsApp notifications again in the Watch app by turning them off, restarting both devices, and turning them back on.

If the previous methods don’t help, try unpair iPhone with Apple Watch but don’t forget to create a backup. Then restart both devices and recreate the connection. Also pay attention to updates: install them, if any.

Recently, Apple published a report in which it became known that owners of equipment are healthier every day. We studied the document and explained how Apple makes us healthier and why it is so important for the company.
